THE EGG VESSELS
White on Blue
The idea of the"Egg Vessels” was to create a “Conversation piece” with an interactive aspect. Designed with simplicity in mind from porcelain and inspired by the timeless “egg” shape.
In “Egg Vessels” each set has a story to its designed decoration:
"White on Blue" is inspired by traditional “blue on white” porcelain painting, well known in the history of ceramics art. The use of reverse white-on-blue decoration is playing with the concept of traditional decoration on porcelain and its heritage.
I used expressive brush strokes that can be found for example in Cy-Twombly paintings.
White strokes on the cobalt surface are complemented by a traditional yet contemporary gold finish.
“Egg Vessels” are made in four different sizes and consist of ten various collections. Each collection has a story and it is hand-painted in gold.
Collections were completed in the period between 2018-2020
